whoa yem ji.
junk sibling and i think of and laugh at for several minutes.
p.s. you have not missed anything. this should not be funny.
huh. just noticed that there’s a male version of any kick-ass female solo in tamil. makes me a little angry-ish. miffed. mopey? but then, what doesn’t?
i have exactly three examples (i can think of right now):
- o podu (original) - awful dude insertion
- manam virumbude (original) - not awful dude version
- kanathil muthamital (original) - fairly mleh male version
i’m sure there are more. think of anything?
wow the subtitles really kill any poetry left in the lyrics.
besht song sounds kinda dumb in english ok?

WHOAAAAA first time watching this video in its entirety. digging this lungi + sneakers + drouzer look. how busy is this video goddamn! the entire thing is obnoxious in a south indian sort of way.
way fun. this from yesterday:
went south-i today:
i realise i’m not great at this but still, requests?
i used to be able to watch indian movies, the mad clothes, dances, predictability and all. but at some unknown point in the recent past i’ve lost the ability to feel/digest any display of emotions.
movies on love make me sick. movies on family obligations make me sick. commentaries on corruption/social injustices make me sick. sentimental sequences about poverty/helplessness/rape make me sick. parents, sisters, mothers in law, spoilt rich girls, step-siblings, family rivalries, orphans. but it’s mostly the over-dramatization of some medieval-sounding honour code, usually dependably sexist that makes me sick.
at least the music was good. i say was because it is now not good. here’s an old favourite that has the woman (banupriya) literally breaking her back, “dancing” and trying to be “sexy” while fatty fat-fat (prabhu) walk around apparently too cool to even lip-synch.
